JCPS Earthquake drill planned Tuesday

Posted by Christi Reynard email

LOUISVILLE (WAVE) - While most of Kentuckiana is concerned with rain and flooding, being prepared for a different type of emergency is what Jefferson County Public Schools will do Tuesday. They are participating in a district wide earthquake drill.

The drill will include "Drop, Cover, and Hold On" instructions when the schools get the alert at 10:15 a.m. Then everyone will evacuate school buildings and do a head count.  A Building evacuation would occur if building damage occurs during an earthquake or aftershocks.
